A Note From Sara Tracey, Managing Editor

It’s a scary time right now. We hear the news about the Coronavirus. We see the long lines at the grocery store. We drive by restaurants with empty parking lots.

I’ve been scrolling Facebook a lot over the last week or so ---- partly out of boredom --- partly out of needing information because we don’t have television (I’m #thatmom) ---- but mostly just to see the silly memes and pictures my friends are posting about #coronahysteria

But …. In all seriousness, there ARE people who are truly fearful. People who have no hope. People who truly see only the dark side of this horrible pandemic.

May this bring you hope and peace today. Trust God. He’s got this!

CONNECTING WITH THOSE INSIDE OUR HOMES AND OUTSIDE
Discussed by Rob Flood
with New Growth Press (www.newgrowthpress.com/)


Part 1 of 3

During this Coronavirus quarantine, how can we intentionally connect or reconnect with those we are now spending so much time with?

Today, marriage counselor and author Rob Flood offers encouragement through practical advice we all can use.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Before all this craziness started, you probably didn’t spend 24/7 with your spouse and/or kids. Now, the situation is quite different. Why is it important to change our communication habits?

Should we be more focused and intentional with those we live with? Rob says: “None of us are experiencing normal right now, so it’s the perfect opportunity to choose what area of our lives we want to focus on.”

How can we all strengthen our relationships during this trying time?

Here is a fun thing to do “with” friends or family during the Corona quarantine: Using Facetime or Zoom put your laptop, iPad, phone, whatever at your table and have dinner together!



PART 2 OF 3 - CONNECTING WITH THOSE INSIDE OUR HOMES AND OUTSIDE
Discussed by Rob Flood
with New Growth Press (www.newgrowthpress.com/)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Rob has been married for 24 years. He and his wife have 6 children, including one with different abilities. How has his family-life changed during the Corona quarantine?

How can we make new memories with our family right now? Movie/game nights in the garage. Picnic on the front yard. “Normal” things with a twist!

Why should we engage more in conversation with family members who DON’T live with us?



PART 3 OF 3 - CONNECTING WITH THOSE INSIDE OUR HOMES AND OUTSIDE
Discussed by Rob Flood
with New Growth Press (www.newgrowthpress.com/)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Should spouses schedule time for each other each day – and actually do it? This will be hard at first, but it will definitely be worth it! Rob Flood calls them “purposeful conversations”.

What are some out-of-the-box ways we can make memories with our family and friends during Corona quarantine? Rob says his kids love to give and receive hand-written letters. Another suggestion is to reach out to Facebook or Instagram friends you haven’t seen or talked with in a while.

PSALMS FOR LIVING
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program


Today’s Psalms for Living devotion is from Psalm 41:13

How do you praise God? If God cares for us so much, even with all our sin, how can we do any less than to love Him, too? Verse after verse in the Bible proclaims praise to God.

Bonus Scriptures:
1 Timothy 6:15-16
Jude 24:25
Ephesians 3:20-21

LESSON 3: GOD’S PROMISES
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 1

Are you still feeling anxious and fearful over the Coronavirus? You are not alone! Mark Lanier has more Coronavirus encouragement for us this week.

Scripture Passage: Isaiah 40:1-5

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why was God’s heartbroken? What had the people of Israel done to make God so sad?

Mark uses a map of Israel to explain what Isaiah was writing about. How do Assyria, Babylon, Judah, and Nebuchadnezzar fit into the story?

Why did Isaiah write about the destruction of Israel in chapter after chapter?

Ezekiel also wrote about this. Tune in tomorrow for more from Mark on Ezekiel’s take on it.

Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy lesson has gone ONLINE for the next few weeks out of precaution due to the Coronavirus. On Sunday, March 15, Mark taught on Lent, including Lazarus Saturday, Palm Sunday, and Good Friday.



DON’T GO INTO TURTLE MODE
Discussed by Dr. Stephen Trammell
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Day 1

During the Corona quarantine, have you stopped ministering to others? That’s not unusual! The future is uncertain for all of us. Pastor Trammell wants to encourage you this week to reach out to someone and minister to their needs.

Scripture Passage: Mark 10:32-45

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Has your routine been interrupted due to the Coronavirus quarantine? What has gotten better? What has stressed you out?

Pastor Trammell opens the sermon with a special message for the kids. Listen is a family as he talks about “turtle mode”.

Concerning the Scripture passage for this week: Why did Jesus predict his death to the disciples three times?

What do you want Jesus to do for you right now? Tune in tomorrow for more on this passage from Pastor Trammell…
